Make sure you know what make of calipers you have before buying any pads! As far as I know, there's about 3 different makes good old Renault could have used

Mine has ATE calipers front and back, but there is also BENDIX and GURLING( <-- not sure if Renault use these, but Peugot do!) and the pads are all slightly different shapes

My dealership suggested I purchased all the different set of pads first, then returned the pads I did'nt need and get a refund Needless to say all I did was take a front and back wheel off and looked at the calipers before buying the pads

Would also suggest buying the pads from a motorfactors instead of Renault! I was quoted 40 for the fronts, but got front and backs for just over 50 from a local motorfactors!!

Hope this helps
Great advise Matt. Sometimes it is possible just to look at the master cylinder to see what type of brakes you have fitted. It will be on the cylinder itself not on the fluid resevoir.
Hope this helps. Kind regards Oily.
